Haile Gebrselassie Sets New World Marathon Record

Posted by Filed Under: Inspiration & Motivation, Marathons, Video

Yes I know, Mark beat me to the headline but really, can you sing the praises of a 2:04:26 marathon finish too often? Not on a site called the Complete Running Network!

For this video you need to be able to sing in German, or at least be able to understand it. Since most of us don’t I recommend sliding the placeholder to the right and just watching the last minute or so of this 6 1/2 minute video. You don’t need to understand German to get the excitement of this remarkable finish.

About 21stCenturyMom

I found myself at the age of 38 the single full time working mother of 3 small children. I took up running because I figured I could get the biggest benefit in the least amount of time. Swearing never to run a marathon I found myself going out for a 4 - 6 mile run several times a week. I ran my first marathon 6 years later. Five years after that I ran another and then the next year another. Then I got bit by the triathlon bug so now I split my time between running, swimming and cycling. This year I think I'll run another marathon. And next year - who knows?
